West Ham vs Southampton Preview and Liverstream
Surprisingly, West Ham have found it much more comfortable against the Premier League big boys than facing bottom-half opposition this season. David Moyes’ team have shown great promise with their dynamic style of play, sitting in the top four of the table for long.
However, more recent fixtures have highlighted their weaknesses in front of goal, with just a solitary win from their last five in the League. It is not exactly a great return for a side having ambitions for top-tier European football next season. West Ham need to replicate the performances that have led them to 3 wins over the traditional ‘big-six’ against opposition that aims to stifle them, especially at home starting with the Saints on boxing day.
Much was expected from the Saints as well this season, with Ralph Hasenhüttl being given enough time to imprint his ideas on the squad. However, Southampton have failed to live up to the hype, languishing 15th in the standings. They have lacked an identity as a team this season and they need to address it soon to aid their climb up the table.

West Ham Team News vs Southampton
With the Premier League deciding against postponing the Boxing Day fixtures, it remains to be seen how many COVID absentees both sides have. In terms of injuries, West Ham are in a bit of a muddle at the back, with Ryan Fredericks, Kurt Zouma and Ben Johnson all expected to be out against the Saints. Angelo Ogbonna has also been ruled out for the season in a big blow to the Hammers’ backline. Thankfully, the rest of the squad is fit and raring to go.

West Ham vs Southampton Prediction
Going by recent form, West Ham shouldn’t be having that easy a day against the Saints who will make it hard for them, as they target a spot in the Champions League next season. We expect the Saints to put up a strong fight but they will ultimately be undone by Antonio’s brilliance in a 2-0 against Southampton in a further blow to the Saints’ survival hopes.
